    The Next Berkshire Hathaway is FRFHF

    Fairfax Financial Holdings Limited (FRFHF)

    How Prem Watsa of Fairfax Financial (FRFHF), the ‘Oracle of Ontario’, beat the downturn:

    Outlook India Magazine

    "Watsa was introduced at that 2007 event by Prof George Athanassakos, director of the centre. Athanassakos recalls that speech: “Mr Watsa is an outstanding VI (value investor) with a contrarian view on things. His excellent reading of the markets in the last four years enabled him to successfully use credit default swaps (CDSS) and make money when everyone else lost. He had commented on the markets in a conference I ran in May 2007, in which he was the keynote speaker. During my visit to see Mr Buffett, he asked me who endowed my chair, and when I said Mr Watsa, he smiled and said, ‘Smart guy, he made a lot of money on cds.’”
